Race Day Logistics:
For those Scouts, parents, and siblings who have already entered, the "Men & Woman 29 and under" race will start around 9:09a. We will meet near the starting line of the race and not at the usual Sports Authority meeting point. We will scope out a meeting point on Saturday, Mar 28th, and provided detailed information on the specific location and time for us to meet on Sunday morning. Parking on race day will be very tight so plan on arriving early.
For any questions contact Mr. Kirkwood.
